It was totally awesome. I mean, alien air hockey! And you could put so much power behind your paddle that the puck would bounce around faster than you could follow it, and then fly off the table and break the "screen".

Of course! I probably spent several hundred hours playing it... It played great on my Mac II, but was critically insane on a Quadra 700 without the "Sludge" CDEV that would slow the processor down.

My least favorite foe was the teleknetic woman

Yeah, I remember that woman! I played it on an ancient b&w Mac "lap"top.

I had this for my Amiga. I remember the alien character who kept sipping champagne (I think it's the one in the screenshot above?), and halfway through the game he'd become drunk and start making mistakes.

Yes! He must've been the Glass Joe of Shufflepuck Cafe.

You should submit a 8-hour video of you playing that game as your assignment

eleven years pass...

found this thread while looking up "Penguin Cafe". this game was a huge part of my childhood. I played it on a black & white Mac. I was so young I didn't even realize that the lizard alien was getting drunk. what a fun cast of characters that game had. I could never beat fuckin' Biff but I eventually figured out how to beat that psychic lady with that crazy serve. I miss when games had great/dumb concepts like that. "Your ship landed on an alien planet and they really wanna whip your ass in air hockey"
